Windham Excited about Senior Campaign

The Greyhounds of Ocean Springs saw some nice gains offensively in 2011 under the direction of new head football coach Ryan Ross. Ross' offensive scheme appears to have fit quarterback Wes Windham like a proverbial glove. With nearly 1,700 yards passing as a junior, Windham believes year two in the system will be even better.

"I am excited about the year," said Windham. "This year I don't have to worry so much about learning the offense.

"I can just focus on getting better."

The Greyhound offense returns several players that give Windham a lot of weapons to choose from.

"We are really only losing two players on offense," said Windham. "We have a lot of our skill players coming back and that really excites me.

"We were altogether last year, so that should help us even more this year."

Windham's emergence on the Mississippi Gulf Coast helped draw the attention of several college recruiters.

"I am hearing a good bit from Purdue, SMU, Harvard and Yale. I was hearing a lot from Mississippi State in the beginning, but it has sort of slowed down with them," said Windham. "This summer I am planning on going to SMU, Purdue, Mississippi State and probably Harvard."

From the sound of things, Windham may have to make a two fold decision.

In addition to the correspondence he is receiving from football coaches, Wes is also hearing from a few schools about playing baseball.

"I am hearing some from Mississippi State, Southern Miss and Tulane," said Windham. "I went to a camp at Mississippi State in February and I got to meet all of the coaches.

"I am planning on going to Tulane some time too, but I am not exactly sure when that is going to be."
